When Haunted Mines, a long-beloved local Halloween attraction, was raised from the dead by Hellscream Entertainment earlier this year
, fans of the haunt were overjoyed to hear they’d be opening a new location well in advance of Halloween season. Now that we’re mere weeks from Halloween, Haunted Mines, Hellscream and Jon Eddy Productions have put together a perfectly spooky celebration to get you in the spirit of the season. Boos & Brews promises a thoroughly entertaining haunted house experience in Haunted Mines’ new 14,000-square-foot location, and a scary spin on the traditional brew fest with samples from local breweries and distilleries filling the Colorado Springs Event Center, where you can enjoy live music by Alice Cooper tribute band Dragontown Dan and a performance by DJ Grin, who also happens to be one of Haunted Mines’ actors.
